End of the Trimester!

Tomorrow will be the last day of my second trimester at Jerome High School. For those of you who don't know what a trimester is, it's just like a semester. Except we have three. Not two.
I'm glad the trimester is about done. :)

I'm applying for housing at Utah State today! Ahh! I'm growing up. Wierd.

Sunny Rain

June 24, 2009. Actually, I'm writing this on February 24, 2009.

Sunny rain is definitely one of the most splendid things in existence.

When Rain falls, the sky is usually expected to be cloudy. When the Sun shines through, it truly is a miracle. We've had Sunny Rain all day, and it has helped me so much to just be me and to be cheerful.

The thread of my thoughts wind around the idea of Rain, and Sun, and Sunny Rain.

The Rain is like my hard times . . . Sometimes, when it's pouring Rain, I feel the need to run away from it. To hide from the cloudy tears. When I see the Sun shine through, It gives me a whole new joyous perspective, and the Rain becomes a grand adventure. The Sun is always there. Sometimes, I just can't see it . . . I just need to remember.

I love to dance in the rain :)

To: My Best Friends

I loved the daffodils,
And running in the rain.
Laughing till we about peed our pants,
There was nothing quite the same.
Reading books by the fire place,
Playing at the park,
We painted fences,
Played silly games,
You left a hand print on my heart.
While eating Ice Cream,
And playing in the snow,
Time ran out, I had to go.

Time's gone by.
We've giggled and cried.
I just want to say...I miss you.

Splendid.

Chocolate. Sneezing. Sun.

I love chocolate.
I love to sneeze.
I love the sun.

When I eat chocolate and look at the sun, I sneeze.

It is a splendid sensation. :)

Chocolate. Sneezing. Sun.

*Sigh!*

restless

i am restless

i want to run
i want to yell
i want to dance
i want to grow
i feel as if i'll be 17 forever...

time is moving so SLOWLY

i want to progress
i want to love
i want to learn
i want to play
it seems like i'm going to be stuck in this time for the next 10 years...

Something to be grateful for.

So, my whole family got the 24 hour flu. Well, Benny, my mom, Emma, and I did. It is not very fun. . .

Today it hit me, but I am grateful. I am grateful that I haven't had to throw up or anything :). My symptoms just include being chillish, having body aches, and tummy hurts. I haven't had to deal with throwing up a billion times like the others (knock on wood!), and tomorrow should be well enough to go to school :).

What a blessing!

My New Theme Song

I have a new theme song. I've heard it before, but for the first time today, I listened to what it was actually saying. I love it :). My favorite part is at the beginning, and I'll share those lyrics with you. You can also listen to the full song on my playlist. It really is my new theme song.

Many the Miles - Sara Bareilles

There's too many things that I haven't done yet
Too many sunsets I haven't seen
You can't waste the day wishing it'd slow down
You would've thought by now
I'd have learned something

I made up my mind when I was a young girl
I've been given this one world
I won't worry it away
But now and again I lose sight of the good life
I get stuck in a low light
But then Love comes in

How far do I have to go to get to you
Many the miles
Many the miles
How far do I have to go to get to you
Many the miles
But send me the miles and I'll be happy to follow you, Love
************************
Um, I like this song a very lot :). I listened to it, and I asked myself, "Self? Is this song written for you???" and I replied, "I'm pretty sure it is. I think it's really titled, 'Becca's Theme Song'. Not Many the Miles. " I like to apply this song to my greatest loves. My family, The Savior and the Gospel, and my friends. I will go many the miles for them. :) I'm pretty sure if you're reading my blog you most likely fall into that category. Listen to the song. It will cheer you up on a grey day! ..... or any other day you may be having :)
